Bar Notes: Tretter’s (Prague)

Cocktail Wonk Rating: 7.5/10   Tretter’s styles itself as a classic New York bar from the early 1930s and it succeeds at evoking that vibe: Mosaic tile bar counter, vintage cash registers, and an antique mirror running the entire length of the backbar.

Bar Notes: Hemingway Bar (Prague)

    Cocktail Wonk Rating: 9.5/10   Of all the bars I was looking forward to in Prague, Hemingway Bar was the most eagerly anticipated.

Easily in the top 10 percent of the coolest bar spaces I have visited. It’s actually a hotel bar, although with its subterranean stone cellar vibe, it doesn't feel like it.... Continue Reading →

Bar Notes: Prague Overview

  Black Angel's, Prague As part of a three-country spin though Europe in the waning days of 2014, Mrs. Wonk and I thoroughly enjoyed four (chilly) nights in Prague. Although the London cocktail bars were the big game on this trip, I’d deduced beforehand that Prague has a handful of cocktails bars that looked like... Continue Reading →
